It all depends on how it's taken. Does she have the placebo pills at the end of her cycle, or is it constant to avoid periods all together.

I would consult the doctor as side affects vary. Ethe pill basically tricks the body into thinking you are prego, so there will most likely be something that comes along with that.

the doctor told her she has to start taking it the sunday after her period comes. She will still get her period,it is supposed to be lighter.

With the pill, I never had any side effects.

I had side effects with the patch, shot, and nuva ring.

I have heard of weight gain and irregular cycles.  Nothing major.  I hope it helps her.  Please let us know how it works for her, it might help other moms.   :)
